Catching up

Thursday, February 7th, 2013

I have been very quiet here these last few months, not because I haven’t been busy, but precisely because I have been super-busy. Here are some of the things that have been going on:

* Gil Marsh was nominated for the 2013 Teen Choice Book Awards. (Voting is still open until February 13 here)

* In November, I had the great pleasure of participating in the Bring Your Own Book and Blanket evening at the Davis Street Elementary School in New Haven, Connecticut. I met with a great group of inquisitive and engaged students who joined me to think about how you go about writing books that include many different cultures.

* In December, I finished the novel that I had been working on for NaNoWriMo, only to realize that I have to entirely restructure the beginning. I have since been working double-time to complete a serviceable first draft. At some point I’ll share some of the fascinating research I have been doing to help it along.

* In January, I presented at the first Shoreline Arts Alliance Winter Workshops for Writers & Illustrators in Chester Connecticut, and discussed the art of revising novels. The workshops were well attended, and as a bonus, the proceeds went to benefit the Tassy Walden Awards: Fresh Voices in Children’s Literature.

And coming up:

* Gil Marsh will be released in paperback on February 26th. Woot!…

Gil Marsh

I am so excited to share with you the cover for my latest novel: Gil Marsh. It’ll be for sale in February, 2012. Woot!

Here’s the book blurb:

Gil Marsh is the golden boy of Uruk High School. Smart, athletic, and good-looking, he is popular with his classmates, his teachers, and girls. Then a new kid, Enko Labette, arrives from Montreal. Enko has no trouble keeping up with Gil both on and off the track. Though the competition makes Gil wary at first, the two become inseparable.

Fate is not on their side. Almost as soon as their friendship is cemented, Enko dies, leaving Gil inconsolable. Unable to find comfort in family or friends, Gil secretly heads to Quebec in search of Enko’s grave. The journey north will test his intelligence, strength, and endurance to their limits.

Based on the Epic of Gilgamesh, the oldest of written tales, Gil’s contemporary story weaves together a quest to find immortality with Quebec’s landscape and history. …

Word Up Day at Lyme-Old Lyme Middle School

Friday, April 15th, 2011

I had a great time at Word Up Day at the Lyme-Old Lyme Middle School today.

After a rousing assembly led by Tom (“T-Bone”) Stankus, students split up to a series of workshops led by people who use words in their careers—journalists, writers, illustrators, musicians, lyricists, publishers, etc. After the workshops, the organizers served the presenters a yummy lunch, and we got to admire baked cakes, cookies and other edibles (which we didn’t eat) created by students and inspired by books. The afternoon assembly included skits based on students’ favorite books.

At my workshops, I met dozens of terrific students. I talked about writing and publishing books. I told them that when I was a kid, I was miserable at spelling and was basically a math geek. But I was also a storyteller. Some of these stories were out-and-out lies—which got me in real trouble. But I also told and wrote stories for my family. Eventually, I parlayed my habit of telling stories into writing.

One of the great things about talking to students is that it reminds me of what it was like to be a kid. I was describing how much I love to read, and remembered the day in first grade when I realized I could decode words. I had read “crocodile” and “hippopotamus,” and it felt as if something magical had just happened. It was the beginning of my lifelong fascination with words.

The students asked some good questions, too—like whether it bothered me that I had to revise what I wrote. My answer: not really—truly. No one likes hearing that what they’ve created needs work. But the revisions made what I wrote better, much better. And I am glad that someone took the time to help me improve the stories I created.

There were some other very talented folk a Word Up Day. I was fortunate to spend time at lunch with Leslie Connor, Sarah Darer-Littman, Scott Ingram, and James Benn. And I ran into Lauren Agnelli, although we didn’t get much of a chance to chat.

The day could not have run this smoothly without the time and effort of Lyme-Old Lyme Middle School’s friendly and dedicated staff, and the group of helpful student volunteers. Thank you all!…
